    .Astronomy 2009
    from 30 Nov 2009 through 4 Dec 2009

 
Preliminary Program

Program

 

All lectures take place in room 201 of the Huygens building, if not mentioned otherwise.

 

The afternoon ‘unconference’ sessions are driven by talks, workshops and meetings generated during the week by the conference participants using a communal whiteboard in the Lorentz Centre. If you have an idea for a talk or a project you would like explore, then these session are your opportunity to get the right people together to discuss or present it. We had so many good ideas for talks that this seemed like an interesting and democratic way to share them.
